Hi Nancy! I was wondering if you used melted icing to dip your cake pops, would the icing dry like candy melts? I would so appreciate it. Thanks!

Yes, you can use melted icing to cover your pops, but it does not dry as hard as Candy Melts, and since it is thinner it shows more lumps, so take special care when shaping the balls.
